Flandreau Herald lookup needed

Classification: Query
Surnames: McGuire, McAdams, Malamphy, O'Leary, Rice
My great-great grandfather, Daniel Mcguire, is supposedly buried in the Old Catholic Cemetery in Flandreau, having died in 1889. His daughter Estella who died at about age 11 in 1898 is also buried there.

I am at a brick wall with Daniel's family, especially anything about where he was from and who his parents and siblings may be.

His wife was Rosa McAdams who grew up in Minnesota. I do know that several of her family members had moved to Moody County, with surnames such as O'Leary, Malamphy, and Rice also in the family.

I found that the Flandreau Herald for the year 1889 has supposedly been microfilmed. I have no idea if any sort of obit or mention would have been made in this weekly newspaper but if anyone has access to this film and would be willing to look in issues from February 1889, his death date is thought to be Feb 7, 1889. Or if anyone knows any other way I can access this, I would love to hear about it.

I am a long ways away in Oklahoma and not much chance of getting elsewhere any time soon.
Thank you!
